Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies - The First Year Blog #OatmealChocolateChipCookies

It’s cookie time!

1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/8 cup white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 egg + 1 yolk
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup oatmeal
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cornstarch, salt, baking soda, flour, and oatmeal. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips.

To scoop the dough, I used a 1/2 tablespoon and dropped the dough onto the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If you want larger cookies use the tablespoon to drop them, but using the 1/2 tbsp I ended up with 46 cookies.

Bake for 9-10 minutes. The edges should be lightly golden and the centers just set. Let cool for 2 minutes on the pan before transferring off to cool completely.

    These cookies look great. I love the size of them. So many cookies flatten out as they’re baked. And I love oatmeal cookies…they’re perfect! :)

    Thanks so much for adding you links to my Blog Hop today. Please come back again next week. :)
    Many blessings,

    I made these cookies on a whim this afternoon. After a failed Easter dessert I decided I wanted to make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and this was the first recipe I came across on Pinterest. I happened to have all the ingredients and it seemed fairly easy so I went for it. They are really good and just the right size, but the amount of salt in the recipe was a little too much for my taste; next time I will use half a teaspoon. I got 32 cookies out of the recipe trying to use the half teaspoon as a measure like you suggested. :) Thanks for a great and simple recipe!
